Good, Bad, and Other News! – May 2022

Good, Bad, and Other News! – May 2022

As Covid continues to fade from the topmost concern of employers and employees, a cautionary note: So far, so good, but it ain’t over yet. In fact, in some places it’s worse. Think of the 25 million people locked down in Shanghai, with the strict quarantine eased only this week. Only two U.S. states have more people than Shanghai: California at 39.2 million and Texas at 29.5 million. So take a deep breath, count your blessings while they last, and catch up on the past month’s franchise-related news, delivered your way every third Tuesday of the month. And if you’re not doing it already, send us your good (and other) news here and see it next month in this newsletter!
